Hi,

my name is Philipp, I am 23 years old and I live in Germany. When I was 18 I finished school and went travelling. During this time, I got interested in earning money through the internet, because my dream was to live as a digital nomad :) After travelling for 3 months I studied Computer Science, finished it last year and I am currently working in a company as a Data Scientist.
I still love travelling but I am not interested anymore to earn money just for travelling, but rather be financial free.

Next to my studys I started two different affiliate blogs, with whom I earn a few hundred euros every month, but it's not a lot and I just let them run. Afterwards I tried to start a sports brand on Amazon and failed - the 100th wrist wrap was enough :)
Luckily I went to an Amazon conference and met an american guy who told me, he is helping existing brands to win big on Amazon. I started to contact brands in Germany as well and I am working with a cosmetic brand since last year. I sell their products exclusively on Amazon since October and earn between 2000 - 4000€ net cashflow every month. The great thing is, that the season for those products is just starting, so let's see where this leads to.
I will also start to work with them on their online marketing. We launched the new shop today and will start with a new tv spot (also for facebook), facebook marketing and AdWords. I get 15% commission to every sale on the webshop and my plan is to partner with the brand in the future.

Because I read the Millionaire Fastlane, I know that this is not a real fastlane, it is more hitchhiking. Because of this, I am developing a dog product since last year and already have some customers (and feedback from about 60 people, who tried the product). It is in the final stage and will be launched this year.

Like I said, I do all this next to my normal day job. I work there for experience in the area of machine learning and data science, because I think it's an interesting topic and maybe it would be nice to start a software company as well.

Thanks for reading. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.

Kind regards,
Philipp

Thanks! Sometimes it takes a lot of time but I never stopped - what are you doing? :)
I am researching e-commerce and marketing since they are relatively new to me. I am doing product research and niche hunting to find a good start. I plan on starting off selling on less common websites. I am also dabbling using "Trello" to keep my goals marked and my productivity peaked.

Hi Greg, thanks for the idea. I think we should give it a try - maybe contact (micro-)influencers to see if this could work out. Do you have any experience with smaller shops and affiliates?
